Los Angelas, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/28/2012 -- Shares of Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) edged slightly higher on Thursday. The company is the most recent entrant into the same-day delivery battle. During the holiday season, the retailer tested a same-day shipping service in five markets, which gave customers a 4-hour window for delivery and charged a flat $10 fee. So far, the test has been met with limited customer interest. While Amy Lester, a Walmart spokeswoman for global commerce, declined to give exact figures, she told The New York Times that shoppers picked next-day delivery more often than same-day.

Nokia (NYSE:NOK) shares continue to edge lower in late afternoon hours, despite positive reports concerning China sales. The Chinese version of the company’s flagship Windows phone, the Lumia 920T, sold out during its recent Shanghai debut. The phone also topped Amazon China’s top-five list last week, but dropped off after it once again sold out. Nokia, which secured a contract with the country’s largest wireless company, China Mobile (NYSE:CHL), in early December, has helped boost the phone’s popularity with its low-cost offer. While the phone costs $738, or 4,599 yuan, without a contract, the device can be bought for as low as 1 yuan with a 2-year service contract that amounts to $62 per month.
